My edger tipped over briefly, now the starter cord is hard to pull and it won’t start.
ANSWER : Try removing the spark
plug and squirting some carb cleaner or starting fluid in the
cylinder. Pull the starter cord several times for the piston to drive
out the oil. Clean the plug and replace it. Try to start as normal.
If you have starting fluid squirt a shot in the air cleaner to help
make it easier to start the first time.

I have a BRIGGS AND STRATTON QUANTUM XTS 60 push mower and have broken the starting cord. Can you advise how to replace. It would appear that the recoil section of the starter is pop rivetted onto the main section. Do you have to drill the rivets out and replace them after the cord is replaced or is there another way.
ANSWER : NO! Do not drill out the rivets. You need to remove the entire blower cover with 4 bolts (2 up front, 2 in back)I’m going to link you to my two favorite “How-To” videos. Depending on your machine, one of these will show you enough to do it yourself. Once you do one, You’ll be a pro.

Chainsaw starter rope won’t pull
ANSWER : Pull your spark plug to ensure it isn’t a compression issue or even piston/rod damage. If it still doesn’t move, pull off your starter assembly and try to rotate the fly wheel by hand. If it turns, then your issue is in your recoil spring kit. You can replace the unit, or try to disassemble and reassemble.

Need to replace 9n tractor starter when you turn ignition key the starter just keeps going around.
ANSWER : I suggest that you pull the starter and make sure the bendix unit isn’t stuck on the shaft which may be rusted or dirty and corroded first. If the starter spins then the starter itself is probably okay. Hope this helps you
